The Corner Pantry is a new addition to the Mount Washington / Falls Road area of Baltimore. It went in where one of my favorites, Banksy’s Cafe closed. A friend and I were headed up to Towson to meet some friends so we decided to cross another place off of my to-do list and visit The Corner Pantry which I’ve read rave reviews about.
When we walked inside, we were met with trendy and inviting decor, but it was a beautiful day so we decided to eat outside after ordering from the counter. A few weeks prior, I had visited Shoo Fly Diner and loved their biscuit and jam so I decided to order that here. Unfortunately they were already sold out of biscuits for the day (they’re all made on the premises) so the girl at the counter suggested a crumpet. The crumpet was light and buttery, and tasted delicious with the jam. Unfortunately I cannot remember what flavor it was.
I also ordered the Skinny Egg Sandwich and this was delicious. The sandwich came with scrambled whites, avocado, feta, spinach and caramelized onion on ciabatta. This was a great breakfast sandwich and I really enjoyed the fresh bread that it came on.
My friend ordered the Corner Pantry Mac & Cheese. She loved the flavor and the crunch from the breadcrumbs, but wished that the noodles were smaller like they usually are in a mac and cheese. But the cheesy flavor of this dish was on point.
To finish up our meal, my friend and I decided to split a chocolate chip cookie. The cookie was good, but nothing was particularly special about it.
I really enjoyed my visit to The Corner Pantry and I can’t wait to go back and try some more of their delicious looking and sounding options.
